Time to ‘Swap’
I hope you had a chance to see my story about the Swap-O-Rama-Rama.
It ran in Monday’s Life & Style section and here on LoHud.com.
If not, click here to read all about it.
Just wanted to remind you the event is happening tomorrow.
In short, Home Aides of Rockland are running this benefit event that puts an emphasis on re-purposing clothes.
You bring your unwanted items (a bag of clean, new or gently used things) plus $10 to the Germonds Presbyterian Church in New City.
Then, you get to pick from what others have brought — and that’s when the fun really starts.
If you see something you like but it doesn’t quite fit, there will be fashion designers and seamstresses on hand to help transform the piece into something you can wear — it can range from hemming too-long pants to taking those pants and turning them into a skirt.
Complete details are in the story linked above but in brief:
If you go
What: “Swap-O-Rama-Rama,” a clothing swap with a focus on repurposing.
